Hi Bob,
According to EN1090-2 7.4.2 - welders 'shall' be qualified in accordance with EN 287-1 (now superseded by ISO 9606), so I assume you will be getting tested/certified?

Do you have a weld procedure (WPS) to work to giving some guidelines on welding conditions?
To produce consistent welds, it should be just a case of the same welder set up (volts, amps, gas flow rate etc) and doing the same joint with the same technique, is your welder set up (volts / amps, polarity etc) the same as you were using yesterday?
